Course Description

There’s so much to learn about caring for your new baby! This comprehensive three-hour class covers diapering, swaddling, infant safety, immunizations, cord and circumcision care, health concerns and car seat safety. Additionally, skin-to-skin care and using a sling will be taught to enrich your relationship with your baby. This class is a “must” for all first-time parents.

We LOVE babies in our class! If you have already attended this class as an expecting parent, you are invited to attend again with your new baby free of charge. Have fun sharing your birth and parenting experiences with the other expecting and new parents in the class. Simply contact Childbirth Education at or by cell phone at 480-458-7042 to register and make arrangements.
